Roger Bailey. I remember living at 6 Chatsworth Road, the steam trains used to run along a high embankment across the road from our house. I attended Norbury Church Primary School. I remember The Blue Lagoon, old air raid shelters I think near the allottments? The fiveways, Devonshire Avenue, and the day the bulldozers ploughed up the fields behind our house to make a park. I remember Robert Cook who was my best friend at school, Susan Shepherd and Denise Daniels.My brother was Peter Bailey and my Sister Elizabeth they both attended Jackson's Lane. I left in 1959 when the family moved to N Ireland. Sadly my brother Peter died in an accident in 1962. I stumbled across this site, and the placenames came flooding back. Hazel Grove was home. My dad was Joe and mum Norma Bailey. I remeber walks in Middlewood and Torchie the battery boy on a huge wooden TV with a tiny screen :)Anyone remember my family?

Can someone tell me please, when was Raymond Henshaw the MP for Hazel Grove. There is a plaque outside the clinic. It states Raymond Henshaw Memorial Garden. This Garden was Provided by Public Subscription In the Memory of Councillor Raymond Henshaw. Was he Labour/Conservative/Liberal ?
Thanks Allen1

Memories of long Summer Days playing with my mates in Happy Valley opposite Hazel Grove High. The games of manhunt would go on for hours in those woods - escaping sliding across the pipe that runs across the river. That pipe always seemed so high - went down there recently and its about 4 ft above the water.

All good memories of Happy Valley were wiped out as we went to high school and were made to do cross country in the freezing sleet and snow all the way to Bramhall High and back - it never seemed the same place after that torture (abuse is a better word).

Re Councillor Henshaw. I just found an old newspaper that I had kept since it had in it, a photo of my brother at a Hazel Grove Firemen's Dance. The paper is dated February 4, 1965 and in it there is mention of A Memorial Garden to Council Raymond Henshaw at the new Cheshire County clinic and health centre in London Road. It mentions that he died just over 12 months ago. No mention of which party he belonged to. So, if you go to the library, there should be information on him.

Don't have many to buy actually since the kids here like M O N E Y - they like to shop on boxing day and get a bargain. And I haven't been good enough this year so I might not get any. I will ask a younger sister about the horse's name since she has a good memory for that sort of thing. I do remember it though. Still not tied down that photo of the Council School. The architecture sure meets the requirements for the front of the school.
